Established in 1992, Orchard Hotel Singapore’s signature restaurant Hua Ting has built a firm reputation as one of the top Cantonese fine dining restaurants in Singapore. Many spirits were shaken at the news of its closure some months ago but finally, after an extensive four-month facelift, Hua Ting Restaurant returns with a sophisticated new look and an improved menu to match.
At the helm of this grande dame is Masterchef Chung Lap Fai, and along with his team of veteran Chinese chefs, a brand new menu is introduced—one that aims to impart traditional flavours in a contemporary fashion. Look forward to a myriad of intriguing new dishes and creative tea-and-food pairing menus alongside the restaurant’s signatures and crowd-pleasers, all plated and presented in a sleek, artistic fashion.
New to Hua Ting Restaurant’s menu is their Smoked Peking Duck infused with Aged Pu-Erh served with Yuzu Sauce. Aromatic, succulent and everything you could ever want in a Peking duck dish (and more), it is one of those dishes that you’ll find yourself hankering over for days.
We are definitely loving Hua Ting Restaurant even more than we already did!
There is just something intuitive about our love for the sea which always has us longing for a beach holiday or a weekend spent basking in the warm sun and cool sea waters. Perhaps it is because of the comfort that we draw from looking out at the deep blue ocean or maybe we just need a break from the grunge of city life.
And if you have a passion for food, a meal by the waters should greatly appeal to you. Aside from being an extremely romantic place to share a meal with your partner, a view of the waterfront would be a fantastic way for you to engage in deep conversations about life over a meal.
